Mister e's Birthday

The birthdays of the E's are three weeks apart. So things get a bit busy around here. After the fairy cake, I needed something a bit easier to execute. So Mister e had a caterpillar for his First Birthday.

I made a big batch of Seven Minute Frosting because it is so light and fluffy and has a beautiful sheen. It also takes color well.

The caterpillar sections were baked in my glass mixing bowls and then carved to fit one another.

Then I started to tint the frosting a little bit green and frosted the head and tail.

Adding some more green, I then frosted the next sections...

Finally I added more green and frosted the middle and added chocolate stick legs and miniature oreo spots.

After all the spun sugar challenges, I wasn't up to creating legs or anything else.

Mister e thought it was very good and ate the entire head.
